BLACK SNAKE VAT 2 THIRD VENOM
Black Snake starts its life in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. Then several casks are vatted into new sherry butts and are left for around a year before bottling two thirds of the cask. They call these "Vats" as they are a kind of mini Solera. After each bottling they add more ex-Bourbon casks, always of the same whisky, and leave for around a year before again bottling two thirds of the Vat. All future bottlings from each vatting of Black Snake will therefore contain some spirit that was in previous expressions from the Sherry Butt.
This bottling is from VAT 2 and Third Venom.
Nose: Sweet natural caramels are accompanied by very ripe bananas, a common feature of the Black Snake range
Palate: Rrich fruity sherry is very prominent but light in character, like candied orange peel. Touch of oak behind the heavy aromas
Finish: Very gentle tannins with only a slight drying of the cheeks the natural caramel and sweetness stays for a long time
